Methodology

The methodology of this Course is adapted to the e-learning model. Our classes are asynchronous, i.e. it is not necessary to be in the campus on a determined schedule.

This model is extremely flexible allowing you to study around existing work and family commitments. 

The distance learning model combines teaching through virtual classroom, tutorial support and online self-learning.

The programme is developed in a continuous evaluation. You will find the Course content available from day one. The student must submit the assignments proposed by the teacher, as well as the questionnaires that they may contain. The evaluation will be conducted entirely online.

The students of the Course are connected and in constant communication through the discussion forums and the internal messaging of the virtual campus itself. This will help them solve doubts by exchanging knowledge and acquiring greater skills when it comes to passing the course.

Accreditation

The student will obtain a Diploma in Advanced Contact Lens Fitting equivalent to 100 hours of training. The certificate obtained upon completion of the Course will be issued and awarded by University Isabel I.

                          

Optional recognition

The students have the option to include in their certificate the recognition of the Hague Apostille. A country that signs the Hague Convention recognizes the legal effectiveness of a public document issued in another country that signs the Convention.

If the convention applies between two countries, such apostille is sufficient to certify a document’s validity, and removes the need for double-certification, by the originating country and then by the receiving country.

 

Thus, when you bring your own legalised certificate to your country, you will be able to prove that it is certified by an officially recognised university in Spain.

 

To acquire it, consult us .
